26/52 in 52 update

An update on my 52 week list.. 

#6 -   Participated in our first walk on 1/28/2012.  Me, Mel, grandgirl #1 and my sister Stephanie walked in the Hot Chocolate 5K..  we got there about 15 minutes late (the walkers had already started) and all the runners passed us more than one time.  It was really cold and we probably only went about halfway.  But at least we got out and walked and made a donation to the Rankin County Schools too. 

#10 -  see both of the grandgirls several times a week and usually at least once on the weekend.  They are growing fast

#11 -  Jan 14th  went to Randy and Kelly's house in greenwood and finally went hunting with Tyler.  We went in the afternoon and only saw a couple of does.  I am very scared of heights and get really shaky when having to climb any height at all.  The stand was only about 6 or 7 ft off the ground and I had no trouble climbing into the stand,, climbing down was another story all together. So glad it was dark so nobody could take a picture.  Jeff had to stand right at the bottom of the ladder and help me put my feett on the so called ladder rungs..  But I did enjoy that time with Tyler,, I will definitely go again sometime.

#14 - Had a health assessment at our work clinic and know that my healthy weight is around 150,, I have about 16 or 17 lbs to lose to get there.   (better start working harder on cutting out those Sonic drinks and drinking more water )

Ruffled lace headband and the Delta

Looking forward to a nice little two day getaway to the delta this weekend.  Going to Jeff's brothers house with our 3, the add-on, our nephew and the babies.  Plus I think their son and new baby will be there too.  All the boys(and maybe some girls) will be hunting and hopefully killing something as nice as this.. weather is suppose to be perfect so maybe so.

All I'll be killing is time,, spending lots of it with these two sweet ones.  And hopefully get to see baby Brady too. 

 3 mos     2 weeks

Anxious to get started on sooo many projects I have in mind.. maybe one day real soon Ill get around to that.  
I found this tutorial today over at I Heart Naptime and Im hoping to make a quick stop at walmart and make both of the girls one of these this weekend.   These are the cutest little headbands for babies. 
 And the little girl modeling is just precious. 

Hope everyone has a safe and fun weekend.  Be creative!

26/52 in 52 .. no resolutions though

Im the worlds worst at making or keeping resolutions. So this year Im doing this instead.  52 things I'd like to do or finish in 52 weeks. 

1. Take my breaks everyday at work.. whether Im super busy or not.. I deserve them !! And better yet,, walk during break!

2. Have a date night with my hubby at least once a month.

3. Declutter my house – Yep, I know, that’s a big one. Im a pack rat and like to keep stuff that I MIGHT use one day.

4. Don’t pay A N Y overdraft fees this year. I would have a nice little rainy day fund with all the fees I’ve paid this past year.

5. Try to drink more water and cut waaaayy back on the coke. ( and I hate drinking water)

6. Do at least 5 fundraiser type walks (hopefully with my girls ) ..there are several coming up soon.

7. Repaint Tyler’s room and make new camo curtains and pillows for the bed.

8. Start replacing carpet (it has to go) all through the house with wood flooring.

9. Start and finish some pinterest projects that I have pinned.

10. Spend lots of time with my grandgirls. I know too well how fast they grow and I don’t want to look back and wish I had taken more time with them than I did.

11. Go hunting at least one time with Tyler.

12. Try try try to get pictures taken and cards made in time to send out Christmas cards next year.. I love getting them in the mail.

13. Start (and hopefully finish in time) both of the grandgirls a blanket/quilt for their 1st birthday.

14. Find out what my healthy weight is and get there.

15. Keep all the bills paid to date and stop paying late fees.

16. Go to the movies with the kids, sisters and mama.

17. Start eating healthier foods. Cut out the snack cakes and “sniff sniff” not so many Sonic stops.

18. Paint some of those signs I’ve been saving boards for.

19. Go to the St Patricks Day parade with all the family

20. Go to the Canton Flea Market either in May or October

21. Go out of town for the weekend just me and Jeff

22. Invite family and friends over more.. cook and just hang out

23. Throw Jeff a big birthday party.

24. Help Tyler keep his grades up and pass 11th grade

25.  Mardi Gras feb 18th at the coast.. Go.. have fun!!

26.  Find myself a new hairstyle and go a little bit shorter. 

So here's my list of things to do in 2012...not resolutions.. I never stick to those.  And as you can clearly see I couldnt even come up with 52,, what the heck,, so ill be coming back and updating it later.   If you want to see where this started and join along,, go here to Shawns blog.   Good luck with your list.. and Happy New Year to ya,, May 2012 hold nothing but blessings and happiness for you and yours.
